Chapter 4: Before you begin
Before betting on rugby union, it’s important to have a strong understanding of the rules of the game, and what impact they might have on your betting.
There is a plethora of data available to basketball fans to help inform their decisions. With all this information at your fingertips, it can be hard to know what is most valuable to you.
Despite not making the highlight reels, offensive rebounds are one of the most important parts of basketball. Check a teams offensive rebound percentage to see how successfully they’re converting from their misses.
Rebounds aren’t just key for offense. A teams defensive rebound percentage will tell you how strong a team can be defensive, and how hard they’re willing to work to keep the ball from the hoop.
Checking a teams offensive and defensive turnover percentage will tell you how efficient a team is when going forward and on the back foot. Finally, check the teams average points per game.
With the busy schedule and frequent games, it’s important to keep a track of what you’ve bet on and the outcome.
This can help you get a better idea of what’s working, what you can improve on, and help inform your future decisions.
Keep track of various financial indicators to continue betting sustainably. The method you use doesn’t need to be overly complex.
To start with, look at tracking your deposits, profit, loss, and withdrawals. Once you feel comfortable with that you can begin adapting your system to better suit your betting.
Now that you understand what to do before you begin, take a look at the things to consider before you bet.
